    Is it possible to have post-exertional malaise with FM or is that a symptom of ME/CFS only? I mean you know, not just tiredness, but where your temp drops and your heart-beat and you get queasy and your vision blurs, etc. (Wow, sounds fun doesn't it?)

    This does sound like CFS post-exertional malaise ( but obviously I'm not a doc and can't diagnose you).

    If it is, you must be very careful. Overdoing on exercise can permanently lower your functioning if you have CFS. Don't let these people guilt you into doing what your body can't handle.

    And doctors don't really understand FM or CFS. The medical schools haven't trained them.

    Good luck.
